Music Makers Live!: Joe Clarke / Schoolyard Champions
Saturday 23rd July, 8pm
Ballina native Joe Clarke a.k.a. backinhumanform, will be playing his debut album live with a full band. It was recently released to positive reviews, most notably in Hot Press, where John Walshe said, “…the album ends on a distinct high with ‘Auld Lang Xiety’, which is more than simply a super title. This is the most streamed of Clarke’s songs and it’s not hard to fathom why...” Joe sang in Manchester band Adventures of Salvador for 3½ years and moved back to Ballina last year.
Schoolyard Champions is the music of Knockmore’s Cathal Faughnan. Best described as folk pop, the lyrics swing from heavily political to very silly. Cathal is just finishing up his album so if you want a sneak peek before its release next year (I know, ages away), this might be your only opportunity!Tickets: €10. Early booking advised.
